Nokia and Vodafone take on Apple iTunes

Nokia last week launched the Nokia Music Store download service in the UK. Vodafone also unleashed its own music store - but it's banking on streaming rather than downloading to topple Apple's iTunes and iPhone.

UK's music fans can access the Nokia Music Store using the N81 and N95 handsets, or an XP or Vista PC with IE6.

Songs cost 80 pence each or you can shell out £8 for an album. That's a whole penny more than iTunes. You can also stream music for £8 a month.

Vodafone is also aiming to to take a bit out of Apple and O2 thunder as the iPhone launch approaches.

For £1.99 a week, Vodafone MusicStation offers unlimited streaming provided by Omnifone. It will work on most Vodafone phones.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
